Bengaluru’s globalisation in frames

Shutterbugs of Bangalore have reason to rejoice. ‘Weekend of Photography’, a three-day event is being organised by two photographers based in the city- Mahesh Bhat and Mahesh Shantaram. The event kicks off on 8th April.

Speaking to Citizen Matters, Shantaram said that Weekend of Photography is an event of events which will unite photography enthusiasts, professionals who specialise in different kinds of photography such as wildlife, lifestyle fashion and many more. "Paris has a whole month for photography and we felt we could do something on a small scale," says Shantaram.

The event is open to anyone interested in getting a deeper understanding of photography and meeting experts in different fields of photography. "The aim is to expand horizons by exchanging ideas. A person interested in wildlife photography might discover more about lifestyle photography and vice-versa. It does not have workshops but is more about networking and interacting with experts," says Shantaram. Both Bhat and Shantaram are Bangalore based full-time documentary photographers which Shantaram describes as ‘the art of telling stories using photography’.

The events will take place in various parts of the city. There is no registration required. The schedule of events is as follows.
